Ortiz now works for the Red Sox in a variety of capacities. Ortiz sustained a gunshot wound to the lower back/abdominal area after a gunman entered the Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo and shot him from behind.

The Red Sox have reportedly offered a private plane to transport Ortiz to the United States if he needs any additional medical treatment. He added that "the gunman was captured and beaten by a crowd of people", and that police were trying to determine whether Ortiz was the target, the Tribune reported.

"Late last night we were made aware of an incident involving David Ortiz in the Dominican Republic", the Red Sox said in a statement on Monday morning.

His motive was not immediately known, but police said a robbery attempt had been ruled out, suggesting that he may have targeted Ortiz or someone else at the venue. Leo Ortiz told Soldevila that there were no affected organs and a full recovery is expected.

Bautista said Ortiz underwent surgery and his condition was stable.

Warriors say Kevin Durant will practice before Game 5
Durant averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game with the Warriors this season. But VanVleet isn't interested in answering those kinds of questions just yet.

David Ortiz's brother, Eloy, tells Dominican sports writer Dionisio Soldevila that Big Papi is out of surgery and is doing fine.

CDN 37, a news station in the Dominican Republic, reported that Eddy Feliz Garcia, 23, was arrested on suspicion of shooting Ortiz.

Ortiz reportedly told doctors: "Please don't let me die".

Retired slugger David Ortiz was shot and wounded in the Dominican Republic, his father Leo Ortiz told ESPN's Enrique Rojas on Sunday.

Anaridis Rodriguez of WBZ released the footage of Ortiz on social media. Reports indicate at least one person responsible for the incident is in local police custody.
